Month: July 2012

One of the things I think I will miss the most about Moose Mountain (what we started off jokingly calling my parents house years ago and it stuck) will be this tree swing. It has always been a favorite spot of ours and was even where Josh proposed to Jamie several years ago!  Fortunately we have lots and lots of photos of the tree swing, including Jamie and Josh’s engagment shots and some of Jamie on her wedding day with us bridesmaids.

I don’t know about you, but I love dessert and I like for it to look pretty (if possible), but I really don’t like to spend hours and hours in the kitchen. Well, last week Jamie and I were craving another dessert but didn’t have time to make it.

I just got a new camera last week and finally got a chance to start playing around with it. I am working on a post with lots of photos I took using it for later this week but thought I would pop in with a few “outtakes” and wish you all a happy weekend!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Louisa May Alcott. I grew up reading Little Women over and over and watching both the 1949 version with Elizabeth Taylor and the 1994 one with Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes and Susan Sarandon. I loved many of her other novels as well.

I had seen this rosette style cake on Pinterest a while back and finally gave it a try! I wanted to make it using chocolate icing though and a yellow cake. Seeing how it was my first time ever using any actual cake decorating tools I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I have to say it turned out to be much easier than I anticipated.
